Before teachers can contribute to the local item bank in Aware, some setup needs to occur on the Item Bank tab.
Step 1. Select Approve Pending Questions to populate the item bank options, then select Set Access Method. Select the check box next to staff members may contribute to the local item bank.
By default, all items will be submitted for review and publication within the local item bank. If you check the box next to questions contributed by staff members are automatically approved, there will be no review, and items submitted by teachers will automatically be added to the local item bank.
Step 2: After checking the appropriate boxes, select Set Default Security. Under the Local Bank tab, you can set the availability of local bank questions for different levels of tests. Select Save when you are finished making your choices.
If a teacher writes a test question and it is approved, it will still show up for that teacher when creating a Teacher Test, even if the box is not selected. Other teachers will not have access to that question.
Step 3: To create groups to approve item bank submissions, navigate to Management.
Step 4: Select Manage User Groups from the left side of the window, then select Create a New Group.
Step 5: Name the group, then select Next and Finish.
Step 6: Add specific users to the group using the search bar. After adding your users, select Save. Your group can now be assigned to a workflow, as described in the section above.
